‘Are you one of them neo-Nazis?’: Man stabbed in bizarre attack in Colorado (GRAPHIC PHOTOS)
“All I hear is, ‘Are you one of them neo-Nazis?’ as this dude is swinging a knife up over my car door at me,” Joshua Witt, 26, wrote of the incident, which took place Wednesday August 16, on Facebook.
“Apparently I look like a neo-nazi and got stabbed for it … luckily I put my hands up to stop it so he only stabbed my hand…. please keep in mind there was no conversation between me and this dude, I was literally just getting out of my car,” he added.
Witt’s fast reactions spared him any serious injury and he managed to lock himself in his car and drive away before the situation could escalate further.
“It threw me off guard that's for sure but really there's no mental damage I guess you would call it,” Witt told RT.
One potential motive for the attack, which has been voiced in the media, is Witt’s haircut and its apparent similarity to some of those boasted by neo-Nazis.
“I hear a lot of people saying it was the haircut as well but for all I know this dude could've been on drugs or just out of his right mind. I don't know.”
Witt needed three stitches on the wound sustained during the attack. He filed a police report immediately but the suspect, described by Witt as a “black male, mid 20s, slim build, about 5'10" I'm guessing, 160-ish pounds wearing a green shirt and blue jeans,” remains at large.
“[The police] did everything they possibly could... that night they checked security footage at the location but all of their security cameras face the doors and not the parking lot so there wasn't much to go off of,” Witt told RT.
“I understand there's always going to be a bad apple in every orchard so I don't hold this one man accountable for any group affiliation any race or anything of the sort. I am just glad I walked out of this with only three stitches,” he concluded.
